, thank you foring with with us tonight. >> thank you. >> how are you feeling? >> i am feeling really good. i am just thankful that my injury hit where it happened and not anywhere else. it didn't risk any chance of me not playing any sports that i play or continuing to do anything that i do on a regular basis. >> ladies and gentlemen, i think as you look at mckayla you see something below her lip on the right side of her face. why don't you tell the viewers what that is? >> so i was hit from my right side right here where all of the blood is and it knocked out a tooth, messed up some of my gums and ricochetted off the tooth and landed in my jaw and the chunk of the bullet is right here and there were fragments along my lip that they took out when they stitched me occupy. there's a tiny piece in my nose, but other than that, just this combhing is what they were worried about but they are keeping that in there due to the risk of nerve damage if they take it out. >> you are now still healing. the bullet started or went through that entrance area and part of it lodged over here on the other s
ammunition, assault rifles and shells for a 12-gauge shotgun. >> authorities tell us in the apartment they found a batman poster and mask associated with the series and comic book series. we heard from a gun range owner in the area who says james holmes applied to his gun range and it was an odd application. when he called to confirm, the answering machine left a weird message and he put up a red flag but james holmes never showed up to complete the application process. we're told the first funerals are being planned for friday and over the weekend. >> adam housley live in colorado. thank you. >>> the massacre prompted talk about gun control. dug mckelly explains now it's mostly just talk. >> a moment of silence today and reading of victims' names. >> jesse chilldress. >> the senate reconvened for the first time since the massacre. calling for calls to restrict high capacity magazines. >> it's big clips, 100 rounds. you cannot get to him to dislodge the gun because he can fire so rapidly and has so many bullets. >> that kind of magazine jammed during the shooting spree. they're notori
was in the movie theater with his 14-year-old sister. thank you for joining us today. >> no problem. >> mike: you and your sister were in the movie theater when you first heard the commotion, did you think it was part of the movie or did you know something was not quite right? >> i started to think that something might not be right, but at the first time i heard it, i thought fireworks, i thought special effects. you know, midnight showing of a much anticipated movie, why wouldn't they? >> was there panic in the theater where you were? you were in the theater next door, is that correct? >> yes, theater eight. i was actually across the hallway from theater nine. >> and was there a panic even in theater eight, the one adjacent to the one where the shooting took place? >> there wasn't a panic until a couple of people actually got up and started to run out of the theater. after the first, what i thought were fireworks went off. >> and alex-- >> and i noticed at that they were actually -- sorry. >> mike: what was your first instinct, was it to get out of there or protect your sister, what was the firs
will tell us what was in there. we know we have a couple of suspicious packages. one was taken away. we do not want to be too alarmist and say there are bombs popping up all over the campus. it speaks to how skittish people are. you have the bomb robot at work not building behind me. >>shepard: and the investigators are working on all the stuff they found in the suspect's apartment. what do we know? >>reporter: there is a mountain of evidence in that apartment, now, mostly because the explosives did not go off. they got the explosives out of the apartment. they trucked it to a remote location south of here. where all of the explosives were destroyed in a controlled environment. so, among the things we know are part of the evidence, a central processing unit from a computer taken out. a laptop computer came out. we have sources telling us there was a batman poster inside of that apartment, and, also, a batman series mask. not necessarily batman, but something from the series. so a lot of evidence to go through. we, learn a lot about this james holmes as they go through what was found not ap
other signs of trouble. they tell us that the suspected shooter passed a background check and had excellent academic credentials. even got a government grant to help pay his tuition. tonight, investigators are reportedly looking whether the suspect used our tax dollars to purchase his weapons. team fox coverage continues. adam housley at the crime scene aurora, colorado this afternoon. the prosecutors in this case have not said much of anything. but police said that a suspicious package showed up at that university, right? >> yeah, shepard. in fact, the university has been watching things very closely since friday. we know they shut down the two research facilities where james worked. they brought in bomb dogs. they told everyone who worked there when they came back to work on monday that anything they weren't expecting. if they found any packages, anything kind of odd to notify authorities. that's what happened today two. different packages that showed that up people that worked there weren't expecting. they brought in the bomb robot and bomb squad. they withdrew it meticulously
to let us know his whole apartment was booby trapped and if anyone opened that door, there would have been more carnage. >> it's interesting that he did that. the ultimate plan -->> i can't figure that out. >> i think his ultimate plan was to get away and when he was, then, caught in the movie theater parking lot, i'm not sure why he decided it was a good thing and decided to tell the police officers. otherwise, more lives would have been lost at his apartment complex. back to the court hearing for a minute, the bond will be set. obviously he's probably not going to get out on bond with the crimes that he's facing. it's not expected to last long at all and, of course, the prosecution has 72 hours to file formal charges. and they undoubtedly will release some of that evidence in the court hearing today but probably have enough evidence to be able to hold him. >> while we learn more about what will happen during the suspect's court appearance today, family, friends and loved ones came together to remember the 12 lives cut short on friday. and there are still victims fighting for their
felon, that he was a lawful gun user and that he did not use guns. so the club's owner or, glenn, called james holmes to invite him to a orientation session so he could vet him in person. but when the answering machine picked up, he said the message was, quoting here, freakish. listen. >> i got this bizarre answering machine of his that was a very base, gutterral, growling, incoherent, rambling whatever it was, message that was bizarre at best, you know? freakish a little. >> reporter: he went on to say the message included some moaning and movie character-like squeals and laughter. somebody, he said, trying to be as weird as possible. that's when he told his staff if this guy shows up, do not let him join. listen again. >> yeah, yeah. this is kind of strange. this is not who, you know, a lot of shooters and gun people are. we're pretty basic, easy to deal with people. we don't get all bizarre and strange. so, yeah, it put up a flag to me that who is, what's -- what was he trying to accomplish with this? >> reporter: holmes never did show up, and when his wife first told him about the sh
hicks. she was her. she talked to us with her friend laurie, she was inside theater eight, next door to the one where the shooting that took place. mckayla, was shot through the theater wall. it is still in her chin. doctors say it is safer for her right now. her mother said she is trying to get into the courtroom. >> i want to go into the courthouse to see as much as i can. if i can get in. if i can just see this guy, for how much hurt he has done to this whole state, this whole nation. i mean, i don't think he's hurting yet. and i think he needs to. >> reporter: and again, jon, things get going about 25 minutes from now. back to you. jon: alicia acuna at the courthouse. thank you.

holmes' apartment. [explosion [. >> jon: using small blasts they disabled a sophisticated booby-trap left behind in the suspect's home, a nest of trip-wires and flammable liquids and other devices designed, police say, to kill the first person through the door. and, then set a raging fire in the apartment. because the fire did not occur, investigators were able to comb through the place and last night we saw them bringing out potential evidence including a computer tower. police have said these attacks were planned for months. and, they will be scouring that computer for further confirmation. across this grieving community, memorials and vigils are now a daily occurrence. remembering the 12 dead, praying for the scores of wounded. president obama is visiting aurora, today, where he will meet with the victims' families, to grieve and, perhaps, offer words of comfort to the nation. jon scott, reporting from aurora, colorado. >> jon, thanks for that. joining to discuss what happened in colorado and whether there is any better way to protect americans from a twisted mind. senator dianne feins
of their towns coming together. the state has a lot of spirit. here's what they told us. >> it is not this senseless act of violence that marks us as a community. it is the lives and acts of these heros and the innumerable acts of kindness, love and care for our neighbors that defines who thewe are. it won't be easier to move forward, it may take days, months, maybe longer, but the family of those gathered here today we remain here for you. our community is here for you. colorado is here for you and always will be. god bless. >> people are wondering what's left. the accused gunman james holmes will be in a courtroom at 9:30 local time a very brief hearing he will be informed of his right. we will not likely hear awe lot about the charges. from what we understand james holmes in a jail cell about 13 miles from here has basically shut down refusing to give any information at home to investigators, to police officers. don't expect much of course not much of a defense can they mount once the trial begins. the only way to defend appears to be an insanity defense. we do not kn
where they are. >> can you tell us their reaction when they first heard their son's name? >> i think the per's statement clarifies that a bit as to how they reacted. >> she says she didn't know ... (inaudible). >> i thinken can imagine how they are feeling. anyone who has ever been a parent. >> possibly. possibly. possibly. (inaudible). >> not at this time. (inaudible) that's not exactly what she said and i think that was the interpretation that the media were give dog that statement that, somehow, she was like, well, i'm not surprised that this is the person and that's not what she was saying. >> can you elaborate on that? >> i am not going to comment on that. i represent them. >> i understand that. >> i was referred to them by another lawyer. they enreferred to me by another lawyer. >> how long --. >> as i said as well as anyone could under the circumstances. (inaudible) that's her statement. she felt it was very important for everyone to understand the sequence of events and what he said, what she said. and not misconstrue the situation. >> what about the statements that have been
important to us. every ounce of evidence will help us hold this person accountable. so, it was a very, very high priority that we recover evidence and i'm so grateful that we had the bomb professionals from the feds and our local agencies to help us do that. gregg: agents also seizing 10 gallons of gasoline and a poster and a mask related to the "batman" movies. martha: we'll get back to that in just a moment. we want to go to the ncaa statement on penn state. let's listen in. >> and the powerful people who let them down. there's also been much speculation on whether or not the ncaa has the authority to impose any type of penalty related to penn state. not only does the ncaa have the authority to act in this case, we also have the responsibility to say that such egregious behavior is not only against our bylaws and constitution, but also against our values system and basic human decency. the executive committee which acts on behalf of the entire association, and implements policies to resolve core issues, alongwith the division i board, a body of presidents representing all of division i di
of us would do, dies his hair or paints it red, it doesn't mean he's insane. he has to know what he's doing assuming the standards are common. if he didn't realize it was wrong. that would be something that would qualify in many jurisdictions of insanity but that's way down the road. i have into idea. frankly the reason we're suspicious it will be raised is number one, he's a weirdo. number two, the guy who he tried to join the gun club membership heard his voice mail and knew something was wrong. he knew there was something wrong with this guy. and what else do they have? the guy was caught with the goods. he's -- this is not a who a whodunit. the prosecutor says it's not a slam dunk. it's the slam dunk that he did it. it's a slam dunk whether or not there's a legal defense, meaning insanity. which is what i expect. i don't know what else he would raise. >> greta, why does his family need a lawyer and why would they have their lawyer give that statement? do you think that was necessary? >> yes, to call off the dogs, every single person is hounding them. we're hounding them, every s
